WILPF USA submitted this report ahead of the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) of the United States of America. The review was originally scheduled for May 2020 but was postponed to 2–13 November 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The report puts forward analyses and recommendations on the increased military spending to the detriment of investment in economic and social rights; the situation at the USA-Mexico Border; mass incarceration and securitization; the climate crisis; nuclear weapons, arms exports; and the full implementation of Women Peace Security.
In August 2020, on the occasion of the upcoming UPR pre-session of the USA, WILPF USA also released an updated advocacy brief on the same issues.
